TANYA DAVIES MP & STUART AYRES MP REITERATE CEMETERY OPPOSITION

Monday September 11, 2017

Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies together with the Member for Penrith, Stuart Ayres issue the following joint statement:

 

We wish to make clear our opposition to both the Fernhill Estate and the Wallacia Golf Club being used as future sites for cemetery developments.

 

It is important that the amenity of Wallacia and the Mulgoa Valley be maintained. It was never envisaged by the local community that large-scale cemeteries would be developed on either of these sites.

 

Whilst we recognise the need for future work in relation to identifying appropriate cemetery sites under the planning framework, developments such as these do not meet community expectations.

 

We will continue to advocate within the New South Wales Government for no cemetery developments to take place within the Wallacia and Mulgoa Valley communities.
